Former ‘Smallville’ Actress Speaks Out Before Sentencing For Role In Sex Cult: ‘Biggest Mistake And Regret Of My Life’
Allison Mack, best known for playing Chloe Sullivan on “Smallville,” is about to be sentenced for her role in recruiting and blackmailing women into joining the NXIVM sex cult.
In a letter to the court, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Mack addressed “those who have been harmed by my actions,” apologizing for what she had done.
“It is now of paramount importance for me to say, from the bottom of my heart, I am so sorry,” she wrote.
“I threw myself into the teachings of Keith Raniere with everything I had,” she added. “I believed, whole-heartedly, that his mentorship was leading me to a better, more enlightened version of myself. I devoted my loyalty, my resources, and, ultimately, my life to him. This was the biggest mistake and regret of my life.”
Mack added that she would dedicate the rest of her life to undoing the harm her actions have caused.
Her attorneys argued in a memo that the actress be spared prison time because she has recognized that she “committed grievous wrongs and that she has earned her punishment.”
“That is made clear by Ms. Mack’s plea allocution, her decision to cooperate completely and fully with the government, and is further underscored in her letter to this Court as well as her efforts to demonstrate her remorse to the public generally and more specifically to those she harmed. There is thus no need to impose an additional sentence of incarceration on Ms. Mack to achieve specific deterrence,” she added.
THR reported that “Mack was arrested in 2018 and charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy.” The Daily Wire reported in 2019 that Mack pleaded guilty to manipulating women into joining the cult and becoming sex slaves for its leader, Keith Raniere.
